Eggplant Parmesan Coatings

When you prepare eggplant for eggplant parm, what do you coat the eggplant with (final coating) and how do you cook the eggplant before you assemble the eggplant parm with the sauce and cheeses.

I use a 60/40 blend of panko and parmesan. I have experimented and this is the best to date. Nice and crispy with the taste and body of the cheese.

I sear it on both sides in a hot pan with a little olive oil until golden brown, but not long enough to make the eggplant soft. Then I assemble with hot sauce and cheese put it under the broiler until bubbling.

This is one of my favourite dishes non-meat dishes!

Bread crumbs with italian seasoning and grated parm cheese. Brown in oil, then layer with plain tomato sauce, mozzarella, provolone, and grated parm cheese. Bake at 350 till bubbly and GB&D

I coat with eggwash and italian seasoned bread crumbs and fry in olive oil/butter blend. I don't use parm in the coating just the assembly.
